The New York Times has discovered that, in contradiction to US-practices, it is possible to pay decent hourly wages to workers in the fast-food services. $20 an hour is the lowest hourly rate the fast-food industry can pay under the existing collective agreement between the 3F trade union and the Danish employers group Horesta, which includes Burger King, McDonald’s, Starbucks and other restaurant and hotel companies. This illustrates that companies are capable to adapt in countries that demand a living wage.
